What a lovely week it's been - for someone who wasn't participating in the swap I received two gorgeous ATC's from Jan and BJ and I used a couple of ATC sized card toppers I'd made that were ideal to return.  All I had to do was dig out the stamps again and decorate the envelopes.   

Thank you BJ and Jan - I love the typing on the heart, so dinky, and I also LOVE that butterfly button in the middle of Jan's!

Have a good week everyone and you can hop over to Julia's at WOYWW here for this weeks snoop around the desks.

Happy Anniversary WOYWW!

I've inadvertently been taking a blog break - it wasn't planned but I just haven't had the time or the inclination to get stuck into things in my studio!
However, when Jan reminded me it was the 8th anniversary of WOYWW this week I knew I had to pull my finger out and join in.
On my desk for the last 3 weeks has been a bag of stash I purchased at the Brockenhurst Needlework Fiesta, a great yearly event I try never to miss.  So I pulled my finger out and went to great effort last night and took the items out of the carrier bag to photograph them - hopefully I'll have them put away by next week!
 I have two bundles of sari silk ribbon - I was seduced by the colour, hand-dyed embroidery yarns and velvet for a couple of projects I'm planning, and I just can't get enough matte cream beads, as you probably guessed!  

Happy 8th Anniversary WOYWW - and a big thank you to our host Julia who does all the hard work to keep this great party going!
